I saw this recently on Washington Post – Powerball mystery: Someone in this tiny town won $731 million. Now everyone wants a piece of it.: https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/powerball-jackpot-maryland-lonaconing-winner/2021/06/16/501a958c-caed-11eb-81b1-34796c7393af_story.html. Much longer article. I live in one of the few states where lottery winners can remain anonymous. I rarely play and I would definitely go with the anonymous option if I won.
